    Yes, and someone lost their money for a Zagnut bar. Get over it. I am still hoping to see Rosie the robot and flying cars that pack into suitcase size for parking.

    Great, now I feel old for remember that show so well.

    And there should have been Pan Am space ships docking at Hilton space stations in 2001.

    @Agent54

    Did the Jetsons ever say what year it was set in? I think a whole lot of people, without thinking twice about it, just assumed that 21st century meant “right away, as soon as it starts.” And, as Jay laments, in the 60’s, we expected to be much further ahead by the ’90’s.

    And in 2010, we’d still be locked in a space race with the Soviet Union. People make a lot of the predictions in sci-fi that have come to fruition. But there are probably just as many that were way off the mark.

    Let’s hope that version of the future never happens…even if that means no Gina Torres in a leather mini-skirt.

    Yeah, I remember speakers saying we’d have flying cars. Just get in, punch up your destination, sit back, and wait while they take you there. We’ve certainly done quantum leaps in some things, telephones for one. But in others, it’s been better but not quantum better. Subconscious desires maybe?

    At least the Moon is still there

    Everyone else wants me to make them a copy of my personal flying jet pack. They are inconvenient because there is no refueling infrastructure for them.
    I have to hide my personal home nuclear power plant.

    . . . and nuclear power was going to be too cheap to meter.

    Alas, even more proof that we are behind in the times…

    Let’s just all agree that THIS IS NOT the Future We WERE PROMISED when we were kids!

    Nobody can promise you any type of future. There is much that has come true, though. Some sooner than others, and some will probably never come to pass. But we still have video chat on pocket-sized devices, cars that help avoid collisions, and 80" televisions that are only 2" thick or less. Flying jet packs have been around for awhile, but they’re quite heavy. They will last about 30 minutes before refueling but who wants to be suspended on a jet pack for that long?

    So, I’m guessing that the bugs and animals have evolved enough to ride trains and bikes? :-)
